Terry Beckner Jr

More than a few folks tuned in to watch Terry Beckner Jr's decision yesterday. He didn't say a whole lot, but what he said, and the way he said it, was emotional and awesome.

Neat pennant Terry, we should bring those back

Leading up to signing day, there had been some rumors about Beckner qualifying, but Cornell Ford addressed that simply by saying "It's nothing we're worried about."

Also, there was a lot of smoke surrounding Mizzou's competition for Beckner's LOI, it turns out that of Ohio State, Florida State and Auburn, it was the latter that came closest to sniping him. Turns out when Dave Steckel left for Missouri State it gave Beckner "pause" but the Craig Kuligowski rumors were the closest he came to wavering about Mizzou.

On a sidenote, Coach Kul (kind of) responded to the media about his interest in Illinois

#DLineZou reaches critical mass

David Morrison caught this fun note from Terry Beckner Jr.'s Mother in his article on the announcement:

Jermaya White-Beckner

Where did you get those #DLineZou T-shirts? "We were at a restaurant (Shiloh) and a couple people gave them to us. I love T-shirts, so that was right on top for me."

The lesson being, make more sweet shirts Mizzou fans, and give them to everyone.
